She said manufacturing has just started, so they don't have an idea on how fast the queue will go down. I guess a couple hundred were customers that were waiting on the LRS and switched to the +. Some orders have been pending since last November!! So my wait should be shorter than that. As usual, great people to deal with. The new stands are being offered for $289.

It'll be interesting to hear how many opt for their optional stands, and to see photos of the product in use.

Neither the LRS or LRS+ are in an obvious place on their website.

Yeah, I noticed that too, it does say they are working on a new web site though. I sent an email and was contacted the next day. They are a small company of only 30 people, so I'm sure it's a lot of work trying to keep up. I'm glad to see them doing well.

 

last week they told me the list was 250, posted on July 29, 2022 at 14:40:05

Up to 400? That's a big week.

I'm hoping mine will be here by maybe September. Not in a rush.

Were you on the list for the original LRS? I guess they get theirs first since they had been waiting the longest. I remember reading the 250 number, so was surprised when she said "over" 400.

The way I understand it, there isn't any performance advantage. It's an identical speaker except for aesthetic changes to the profile.

But people who've heard both say there is an improvement.

He does?
I saw that video when it came out. He says it sounds different, but he's a "reviewer" and a complete non-technical guy, so I don't put any weight in his evaluation at all.
Plus, he says he asked Magnepan what the difference is, and they were mum.

that the + was thinner ? They were already pretty thin, LOL so I'm not sure what that means. She also said a pair of stands to raise them is a must to get the most out of them, whether theirs or aftermarket. I expect we will find out soon enough what the differences are.

If the motors are different in some way I might believe there's a potential difference (or maybe improvement) in the "+" model.
But if not, it's either a slight change in a crossover component value and/or the reconfiguration of the stand scheme. In either of those cases an existing user can update his/her own speakers. :)

The pathetic answers from Magnepan to legitimate user/customer questions is growing quite tiresome and irritating.

Dave.

Those should be fun and a nice addition to your collection.
I had the LFT-8 hybrid.....so somewhat a different beast.

It's measurable as well as audible. Nothing to do with the crossover! You'd grasp the concept right away, maybe hit on it yourself. Those who have heard it (I haven't) say it has better resolution. I'm told the stand also makes a big difference. Nothing secret about that, LOL. I did it with my MMG's years ago and I assume you mounted yours vertically above the sub?

So, the actual transducer unit of the "+" speaker IS different????
Why can't they just say that for crying out loud???? :)

Come on Davey. Are you seriously dismissing someones hearing because they are a "complete non-technical guy"? Like only technical guys can hear and evaluate sound??

Absolutely! Guys that have no technical chops have no business listening to loudspeakers.

I wonder if a "+" improvement is different from an "i" improvement. At this point the only known common factor is that no one knows what is involved in the "improvement".
